This place is nice to spend 3-4 hours with friends or family . You would love to many things which you have never seen anywhere. There are some nice restaurants with good ambience over there.

I have been to the crafts museum many times as a child and had fond memories of it. But this visit was not as much fun as I was expecting. The best time to go is when some exhibition or event is on. (which was not the case when we went) Also, make reservations in the cafe or else you... More

Enjoyed this museum for the various art mediums of India. The shop is nice too, wish I would have bought the block printing kit. The highlight also was the food at the cafe. I had an aubergine puree with Indian bread which was super!

Anyone who has visited India can't help but feel transported to a place of great art and talent. This museum offers a glimpse into a large variety of the country's charm. We spent a couple of hours, and could have spent a good half day. There is a wonderful cafe onsite and a splendid shop. We had hoped to see... More

Have crossed the craft's museum so many times... almost everyday! But couldn't ever stop by and visit the place. Finally, last week we managed to take out some time and enter the museum. And believe me... its a must visit. The place is so quite in heart of the busy city. The wooden chariot, veranda with tulsi plant, mud and... More

Loved the visit to the Crafts Museum - the the huge wooden tribal sculptures are worth a see. I think they are called Boothalingam but not sure after all this time. The store is also nice to browse.
